Brain death from a open surgery, that sounds highly unlikely. Was your son an organ donor?

hi, i am really sorry for the tragedy. but i was unable to understand, brain dead means he went for coma. in any operation doctors won't make brain dead, it may happen unfortunately during operation as a complication
